Winner 2015 black&write! Indigenous Writing Fellowship a partnership between the State Library ofQueensland's black&write! Indigenous Writing and Editing Project and Magabala Books

From a remarkable new voice in Indigenous writing comes this highly original collection of poems bristling withstunning imagery and gritty textures. At times sensual, always potent, Lemons in the Chicken Wire delivers acollage of work that reflects rural identity through a rich medley of techniques and forms.

It is an audacious, lyrical and linguistically lemon flavoured poetry debut that possesses a rare edginess andseeks to challenge our imagination beyond the ordinary. Alison Whittaker demonstrates that borders, whetherphysical or imagined, are no match for our capacity for love.

Teachers notes available here.

'Whittaker's poems play with vernaculars in a way that renders her poems- in combination with unexpected and fun internal rhythms and rhymes- a wonderful intervention into poetry that bends linguisticfamilycolourcolony lines. (Not poetic lines but the invisible lines that reside in a person or in a poem fragment.)' -Elena Gomez,Overland Literary Journal

'The newly published author lays her personal experience bare, breaking down many of the barriers that often shield the community's visibility.'-Bianca Soldani,SBS NITV

'Lemons in the Chicken Wire is truly an astounding, proudly experimental, innovative, daring, disjunctive, playfuland unique poetry debut.'- Dr AJ Curruthers, Rabbit Poetry Journal
